Explore - Maps
I love maps, I have a whole shelf full. John and I used to get a map of any area we were visiting, and pour over it before we went. Such fun to see what was there. Then on the journey John drove and I read the map. Many times that would lead to mishaps but never mind we would eventually get to our destination.
I just picked a few off the shelf for this photo, using the ones with a photo on the front rather than just a map.
Nearly all British diaries have a map of the London underground printed on one of the information pages, the diary I was given had a map of British Rail Lines as well so they are on the back of the envelope and the page it is attached to. Inside the envelope I have put my rail cards from my latest trip oop North.
I think I will have to get my maps out again sometime and perhaps do a table top rally. That was something John and I used to do at a motoring club we belong to in North London many many years ago in the 1960s.
I have just found a website that have a TT rally using a map I have so I may spread it out on the floor this evening and see if I can do it. Perhaps this is going to be a new/old hobby for me.
